The Macomb Center for the Performing Arts has its genesis in a land purchase in 1967 for the Macomb Community College. A barn that dated from about 1924 was on the land and converted into a theater space two years later, but was destroyed in 1977. The local community raised support and funds for a new theater space#20;the Macomb Center.
The Macomb Center has been a cultural hub for decades now, drawing classic musical artists like Ray Charles, Tony Bennett and Johnny Cash, and stage legends like Marcel Marceau, Bill Cosby, Jeff Daniels and Mandy Patinkin. This intimate stage lets its audience get up close and personal with all the performers and take in the show.
